To the outside world, they seem to have it all. Cassie Barrett, a renowned anthropologist, and Alex Rivers, one of Hollywood's hottest actors, met on the set of a motion picture in Africa. They shared childhood tales, toasted the future, and declared their love in a fairy-tale wedding. But when they return to California, something alters the picture of their perfect marriage. A frightening pattern is taking shape - a cycle of hurt, denial, and promises, thinly veiled by glamour.
Torn between fear and something that resembles love, Cassie wrestles with questions she never dreamed she would face: How can she leave? Then again, how can she stay?

Had a hard time keeping up the with stories going back and forth. I would have like to have more of Cassie and Will romance. No I wouldn't recommend thus book.
I like the book and would recommend it to someone (and in fact did).
I did not feel like the stories between the 3 main characters fully developed.
I was so disappointed by the ending. The other books by her that I have read have had suspenseful and eventful endings. But this one just ended. Because of this, I do not think it was worth the listen.
I have been a fan of Jodi Picoult for quite some time. This book, though, I have to say was not a favorite. I think the narrators did a great job, but the story was kind of choppy. Usually her characters are so well developed, but they are lacking in this book. It's okay, but not fulfilling.
It was terrible from the start. I have loved all of her other books this not so much! I couldn't wait for it to be over.
Not sure, something with more substance I hope.
Neither helped or hindered.
I had heard that this was a great author and so I read her recent book" small great things" and it was really good so I tried to read a few more. I hated the depressing book about elephants so I thought I would try one more and I could not even make it a quarter way through this book because it was so incredibly dull. Zzzzzzzzzzz
